Seven sisters. One identity.
In an overpopulated world, governments have instituted a One Child Policy – making things almost impossible for septuplets to survive – and yet they do, sharing one identity in the outside world – each named for a weekday and only able to go out on that day of the week.
Then, Monday doesn’t come home…
What Happened to Monday? premieres on Netflix on August 18th.
In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic “One Child Policy,” seven identical sisters live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman (Noomi Rapace). Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) who raised and named them -Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday – each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home…
